A few things about me...

My journey so far

I fell in love with IT security because of a coworker from ages past. He showed me just how fascinating and alluring infosec could be, and I've turned it into a passion and hobby since then.

How I try to show up at work


I work best working with other people. I love bouncing ideas off my coworkers and vice versa! If you're stuck on something, talk it out with me, I'll be happy to listen to you. While I'm strictly a work-from-home sort, I'm more than happy to jump in an online meeting at the drop of a hat to figure something out.

My areas for growth

Stays composed throughout conflict or difficult situationsWilling to openly have difficult conversationsMakes decisions promptly, even with uncertainty

While I can readily express myself in colorful, descriptive language, technical writing and conversation does not come naturally to me. As a result, I am working to improve on my technical communication and presentation.

How I stand out

Collaborates effectively with teammatesCreates warm, caring relationships with teammatesClearly communicates purpose and visionFosters high performance teamworkMentors and develops teammates for their growth

I'm enthusiastic and friendly to the point where I can get along with everyone. I love being people's cheerleader, and I can brighten the mood of just about any project.
